    Purpose: To describe the clinical, angiographic, and optical coherence tomography (OCT) findings of a patient with cystoid macular edema (CME) in juxtafoveal retinal telangiectasis (JXT) treated with intravitreal ranibizumab injections. Methods: In the setting of a tertiary referral center, a patient with a long history of Leber’s miliary aneurysms was later diagnosed with ipsilateral juxtafoveal retinal telangiectasis (JXT) type 1A with associated CME. The patient was treated with eight intravitreal injections of 0.5 mg of ranibizumab and followed with examination and Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) for 14 months. Results: At baseline, fluorescein angiography demonstrated macular telangiecatasis and aneurysms with late leakage. The OCT showed a large area of intraretinal fluid in the area of tel.. View More»
